COURSE OBJECTIVES The aim of this course is to provide students how to understand the microscopic appearance and function of normal structures in the human tissues and to understand the ultra structure of the cell . This allows students to integrate this information with other disciplines such as Gross Anatomy, Pathology, and Physiology as they get information about the normal structures. The Basic Histology component of the course will concentrate on the microanatomy of the four basic tissues, namely: epithelial tissue, including glandular tissue, connective tissue, muscular tissue, and nervous tissue. Lectures will give you the details of the topic, and you have to study very well before you start working in the lab. The laboratory sessions are directly linked to the lectures. At the end of each laboratory class, make sure you have covered, and understand, the specific objectives. Discussion during the class is encouraged. Each laboratory class has one or more questions to be answered. These questions are meant to promote enquiry and discussion. The tutorship is to facilitate, to guide you. The Systematic Histology component of the course will investigate how these basic tissues combine to form organs, which operate together to maintain homeostasis. By convention, organs, which work together to achieve a particular function are grouped together as systems (e.g. respiratory system, etc.). Various histological slides has been installed on the laboratory computers. You are encouraged to use the computers during class and for private revision.
